I love this idea. Tree gifting.

“Heartwood was created with the idea that small things count. The gifts we give each other shouldn’t be instantly forgettable (another gift voucher), or temporary (like flowers). Instead they should be sustainable symbols: good for giver, receiver, and the environment. Better than a diamond, a tree really is forever – growing, living, greening.

Heartwood was founded in 2009 by Jenni Rowe. An established businesswoman, Jenni founded the luxury Harfield Guest Villa with her husband, Graham, fifteen years ago.

Trees are our poems, and our histories. Aristotle taught under a tree. Buddha achieved enlightenment through one. And Newton was inspired. Oaks, they say, are wise. Olive trees bring peace. The Weeping Willow mourns. In Norse mythology, the world is a giant Ash – its roots tangled in the affairs of man, its branches brushing the stars.”

The lovely packaging is by At Pace. Packaging photos via their website.
